With the outbreak of war on the Continent, Erasmus Darwin finds himself caught up in a jingoistic fervour for which he feels no sympathy. Yet soon he is on the Western Front: frightened, appalled, and alone apart from a few pals who don't understand his pacifism.
Soon however he finds himself entangled in a secret mission the like of which has never been attempted, one which stretches his pacifism to the limit...
A unique and thought-provoking alternative history of the First World War from the author of Beautiful Intelligence and the Factory Girl trilogy.
